We have set up a Canvas integration: you will need to enable Zoom in your course menu from the Settings Navigation page:
You should now see Zoom enabled within your course menu - from there, you can integrate your Zoom account with your Canvas account, and then begin to set up Zoom meetings within your courses.
Follow these instructions, or the video below from Zoom, to set up a meeting through a Canvas course.
Your meeting will now appear in your Upcoming Meetings list. It will be available to all users in the course to join at the predetermined date and time (please note: it is unfortunately not possible to set up specific Zoom meetings for specific sections through the Canvas LTI integration - all course Zoom meetings are available to all users).
FYI: When you set up a Zoom meeting through Canvas, students in the course will get an email about it, and will be prompted to download Zoom the first time they do this. Students do not need Zoom accounts to be able to join sessions.
Recordings for meetings scheduled through Canvas will be available through the Canvas course Zoom page, and the password is embedded for students accessing them from within the course - but the password will be required for access outside of Canvas (for example, if the recording link is shared in an email).
For class recordings and all other recordings with data protected by FERPA, we recommend having passwords or other safeguards on. Keeping recordings in Canvas is one such safeguard, but other safeguards are available in the sharing settings of individual recordings. See this page from Zoom on Managing Cloud Recordings for more information.
